    Default Starter Help

    I have an 08 JKU. 134k. Installed new Alternator. Immediately upon startup starter will not disengage. Tried restart twice. Same result. Starter is original. Is a new starter needed as well now? Thanks for any advice.

    Do you mean it stays engaged after the engine starts, and the fly wheel spins the starter very fast?

    No sorry. My engine is actually not starting. I'm charging the battery now. Could that actually be the issue. Thx for the help RONJEX

    So, what exactly do you mean by " Immediately upon startup starter will not disengage"?

    Are you trying to say the starter keeps cranking the engine for a time after you let go of the key?
    If so, that's normal behavior for a JK with automatic transmission. It's called Tip-Start. Blip the key over to the start position and the starter will crank until the engine starts, or up to 10 seconds if the engine fails to start.
